Feature Highlight – Tap Selection Group (TSG)

Jan 14, 2019   // Company News, Design Assistant, Feature Highlights  //

Tap Selection Groups (TSG) were introduced in The Design Assistant version 10.00. TSG’s were created in order to address network files that have multiple tap manufactures.


  • Open Tap Spec file (Spec Edit –> Taps)
  • Find the last TAP ID on the Tap IDs/Part Numbers tab
  • Leave a blank line after the last used TAP ID
  • Immediately after the blank line enter a new TAP ID
  • Continue entering all TAP IDs and other specs for the new tap selection group
  • Save the Tap Spec file
  • Hit LOAD

The next time you open the Tap Spec file the new tap selection group will be displayed.
